Butterwell Cottage


2.7 miles NW of Looe / Sleeps 2 + cot

7 Nights from £317 - £640

Butterwell Cottage is a lovely little hideaway for couples just a couple of miles inland from the coastal footpaths that wend their way along Whitsand, Lantivet and Looe bays. Warm and cosy, it has an open plan living-room with a fully fitted kitchen, breakfast-bar and comfortable sitting-area. Upstairs, the bedroom has an en suite shower-room and space for a cot. Set on a family-run working farm and semi-detached from Butterwell House (1282) with its own enclosed garden, it is the perfect getaway for couples wishing to explore the surrounding countryside or walk the coastal footpaths, and is also ideal for anyone holidaying with family or friends next door but preferring a little more privacy and peace.

Perfect for walkers, garden and beach enthusiasts, this is a lovely area to explore, with the Forestry Commission’s Herodsfoot Woods nearby, where deer roam freely and there are plenty of well-kept footpaths to walk or cycle. The fishing port of Looe, the ancient smugglers’ haunt of Polperro and the sailing waters of Fowey are all easy to reach on the nearby coast, while garden enthusiasts and walkers will love Lanhydrock, The Lost Gardens of Heligan, the Eden Project and Mount Edgcumbe. Lovely beaches at Talland Bay and Whitsand Bay are great for swimming, sunbathing and sandcastle-building, with boat and surfboard hire available at Downderry. With Butterwell House (1282) next door, accommodating eight and ideal for family parties, the two properties could be booked together for family celebrations and special occasions. The Owner’s son and family live on the other side of Butterwell House and farm the surrounding 470 acres, and are happy for guests to watch the milking, help feed the animals and meet Toby and Sky the friendly farm dogs.
